Gordon joined KSFR's Dylan Syverson on the air to talk about his wild 28-year ride as the premier music promoter up on the hill, and hint at what to expect from his final season and beyond.

This weekend, the band Hoops will make Meow Wolf a stop on their first full US tour, supporting their debut album Routines. Their music has been described as dream-pop and 80s retro, but as bassist Kevin Krauter tells KSFR's Dylan Syverson, they just call it fun.
